PhD position in Cognitive Neuroscience / Visual Psychophysics - 
University Osnabrück, Germany

The research group for Neurobiopsychology (Prof. Dr. Peter König 
http://www.cogsci.uni-osnabrueck.de/~NBP/) has two vacancies for 
positions of a PHd student. (Scholarships are for a maximum of three 
years, to start at November 1st, 2008. ) The positions involve research 
within the Research Training Group Adaptivity in Hybrid Cognitive 
Systems (http://www.cogsci.uos.de/PhD/GK) in the area of processing of 
visual, auditory and tactile information and sensorimotor integration 
under natural conditions and includes the statistical analysis of 
natural stimuli, simulation of multimodal sensory systems, integration 
of experimental data on the neuronal activity with visual and auditory 
stimulation and the implementation on autonomous systems. Furthermore, 
the position involves participation in teaching Cognitive Science 
courses with an emphasis on Neurobiopsychology. The position offers the 
possibility of further academic qualification.

The Research Training Group is associated with the Institute of 
Cognitive Science and research groups from the Institutes of Informatics 
and Psychology. It includes research groups in Artificial Intelligence, 
Computational Linguistics, Neurobiopsychology, Neuroinformatics, 
Philosophy of Cognition, Knowledge Based Systems, and Differential 
Psychology. The Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of 
Osnabrück is one of the largest European centres in Cognitive Science, 
offering degree programmes for BSc, MSc, and PhD in Cognitive Science 
and carries out research on a broad range of cognitive processes. The 
Research Training Group Adaptivity in Hybrid Cognitive Systems combines 
a curricular PhD study programme with an interdisciplinary research 
programme in Cognitive Science. The language of instruction is English.

Candidates are expected to have a university degree (diploma/Master or 
PhD) and a good research record in at least one of the following areas: 
Computer simulation of neuronal systems, electrophysiology, and visual 
psychophysics, as well as a good command of the English language.

The University of Osnabrück strives to increase the number of women in 
research and teaching. Women are therefore explicitly encouraged to 
apply. Applications with the usual documentation should be submitted no 
later than 18. July 2008 to the Director of the Institute of Cognitive 
Science, University of Osnabrück, Albrechtstraße 28, 49076 Osnabrück. 
Further information can be obtained from Prof. Dr. Peter König, 
(peter.koenig at uni-osnabrueck.de).
